    Recycling the soil I used for my autos. Introduced blood meal, castings, mj leaves, rock phosphate, more neem meal, more epson salt, more oyster shell, roots organics uprising formula, and more granular humic acids. Getting some of the other formulated roots organics since the uprising is a 3 part formula uprising grow and uprising bloom. Going to add another bag of roots organics original and steep/compost for 30 more days. Will be using this mix on my new additions. One gg#4 clone,2 dark ghost train haze clones, 2 mama mia fem seeds (seedsman). Might be setting up a big tent in the shop shortly 😉. Click image for larger version

      Day 18 of flower. Top dressed a special flower mix with rock phosphate, kelp meal, langbeinite, fish bone meal, epson salt, and castings. Diluted a tea with neem meal, kelp meal, castings, rock phosphate, and molasses. Temps are dropping but they look happy and I'm thankful for their resilience.

      Just playing with a new camera app and editing with phone settings. Can you tell the standard pics from the edited ones? 😉

        Campesino I would love to do a real outdoor grow. I had to keep these in the shop more then outside due to weather conditions. Hard to grow outside when you don't get sun and the temp doesn't change till summer 😆. Hoping next year will be better. Thanks for checking in buddy, hope all 3 of your jobs are going well. You must be rich by now 😉.

        Good thing you got that auto water system dialed in 😉. I can't do multiple jobs anymore. I'm too stressed with the one I have now and getting too old 😆. But I get paid pretty well so I don't really have to. Good luck brother. ✌ 🍻

      Here you go Californiakid. This one wasn't topped at all. If you've seen the one next to her you know they're pretty much the same size. The one next to her was accidently topped at 2nd node so I only had 3 branches to work with 😥. She looks like she might only give me 2/3 of what this one will. Just not as many bud sites so they are stacking a little differently.. They weren't really lollipopped either I just took off growth tips and stripped some of the bottom leaves. Took clones from the bottom branches. My buddy has 4 and I kept one. Click image for larger version

        Day 21 of flower. Fed elemental (calmag) and liquid bone meal yesterday and they swelled up over night 😉. Rain and wind forcing me indoors again. Maybe I'll put together some kind of greenhouse for next year. ✌

          Yeah me too I should have started depriving light sooner. I have a few worries about weather and opposite my bloom room is a few auto flowers I was forced to throw in there. It's dark in the bloom room but I can still see light in my rafters. Going to have to do a little more work this week and switch out the rooms so I'm not so paranoid. I should have put them on the other side of the shop 2 weeks ago and dialed in light leaks from that room. It will be set up next year so I won't have any problems or worries.

        Clones coming along in my 5x5 for now. Lights go off around the same time my 4x4 in the shop does. So when I move them out to the shop the light schedule won't change much.

        Mama mia seeds didn't like a lot of light so I shut down the 200watt and they're bouncing up nice and perky. Though one seedling seems to be stunted and not sure I'll keep her around much longer. Too much on my plate to care for any oddities atm. The other one will join the clones in my 4x4 out in the shop.

        And a flower pic 😉 Click image for larger version

        Day 28 might be lacking potassium. Or it could just be leaves that aren't getting light. However I still think they are asking me for more. The buds want to swell but taking too much from the leaves on the plant that wasn't topped. And slight hints of yellow edges on top leaves are a sign something is off. Gnats had been an issue but it's cooling off and they have been few and far inbetween. I may be a little over concerned but it helps me correct the issue before anything goes awry. ✌

          Shop clones being trained for mainlining. Doing 3 branches with my gg#4 going for 12 colas. May do something similar with dgth clone since the dominance isn't broken yet. But will be performing a traditional Nebula mainline on the mama mia seed. Still have clones to introduce but they should be able to keep up if I don't top them. Not sure how many I will introduce yet trying to get auto and photo plants to harvest still.

          Might do some rearranging when buds come down and start a scrog on one side of the building...looking into light rails. Then just setting up the warm spot for the mainlines on the other side of the building. I have the light issue mostly taken care of. The auto side isn't light tight, so will have to fix that when they're done. Trying to keep a perpetual harvest going here and will dabble in some cbd strains as well. I'm too in love with growing to not have a mj plant around 😆.

            Still stacking buds here, though things seem to moving a little slower then I expected. There's not much popcorn or larf on the bottom and I was expecting to see a little more gerth. But there is some lower stuff that's getting plenty of light and sucking up energy I suppose.

            Feels like frost is coming and really would like these girls to finish before it gets too cold for them. They've been dealing with low 40s for a while now. Not sure how these freaking gnats are still floating around in it, obviously not too cold for them 😠. They've been bad on the lower older leaves and on the other side of the bloom wall. The clones are in danger of both of these factors as well. Watered in some bti on the other side of the bloom wall for clones. Top dressed bti and de in the bloom room where I don't see a single gnat but know that's where my leaf damage has to be coming from.

            Phase 2 of my 12 cola mainline is in place. Topped all 3 branches at 3rd node and removed 2nd node. Growth tips are catching up to dominating branch and taking shape. Mama mia #1 is almost ready for phase 1 mainline but mama mia #2 isn't going to catch up on time for mainline training. Dgth #1 and #2 are struggling and have yet to express their mothers' phenos. #3-7 have yet to root. I'll keep 2 and a friend will grow 3. #5 and#7 are looking like the ones I want to keep 😉. Happy growing all!! ✌

              Skywalker starting to fade, almost ready to chop. Giving her another week or so with molasses one last time. Don't really have a dark room set up for her so think I'll try the paper bag method D.A.A.S.69 mentioned. So I don't have to hang. Click image for larger version

              9 do you have any pics of your process. I just want to know how much stem you cut off or how much you break the buds down.

              This plant didn't get 20/4 for a long time. I was trying to see what the difference in yield would be by running 18/6. I'll let you know when it dries. Plant specs are 90-100 grams per plant. The height I think maxed out at 18" but not concerned with it overall. I'm really rethinking my defoliating strategy with autos now. I'll have to do a side by side to see what I can learn. Have some trich pics 😉.

                I can't afford leds that would produce like my hids alltatup. You're trading watts for cooler temps when you go with leds imho. I think if I were to go led I'd have to invest in a superior light company or build my own. But I'm no electrician and have no training to build one, so I'll stick with my hids till I can afford a nice led.

                The one I'm going to get means I'll never have to change another lightbulb in my grow box; how nice not to have to worry about whether the bulbs are getting weak. But I'll use up the MHs & HIDs in my original box. I will definitely ask about whether there's a difference in yield.

                I want to chime in on autos I went hole hog on them last year .I started in August and they grew great the next batch were stunted due to a cold floor I ended up buying some heating pads it was to late for that round , so this year I am growing them again the first round is done and jared the 2nd is about 3 feet tall and the third are seedlings,so keep temps steady.
                @atu make sure you have enough height in your box my little 300 w leds have to be 18 inch from plant something to think about

              Chefbjy, man that's a beautiful plant, I love the way they fade, when getting close, only in good soil.
              On the Brown Bags, I clip the buds off about the size of a golf ball, into the brown bags, trying not to let them touch each other. Fold over the top and put a clothspin on it. And don't open it for 5days ,plus 1day. then in jars, they usually are real close to 68-69percent, then i slowly burp the jars, for another 3-4days ,till they get to about 62percent, and that's it. They taste like they been in jars a month .After a couple of weeks in jars the smell is way better than after hang drying them.
              Try some both ways, but to us brown bags are way better than hanging.
              If your humidity is close to 60percent, it's gonna take 6days ,plus 1day.
              If it's 50percent humidity ,it's gonna take, 5days, plus 1day.
              40percent, 4days, plus 1day.
              Its not gonna hurt to open the bags an check on them, but you don't have to, I used to open an check for mold, but I don't do that anymore , never any problems with mold.
              I sure like your plant, looks like she still has some more fading to do yet, but a week or two she will be very close.
              Its hard to beat good soil, ain't it ? It makes it so easy, and plants love it, they got all they need in good soil, except water.

                Thanks DAAS I'll give it a shot. I don't have anywhere to hang atm so this seems like a better option. I love just using good soil, I've had great results so far and just trying to feed those microbes 😉. Going to do some no till beds and just take what I need when I pot. Mulch, cover crop, and worms...the whole 9.

                Nothing easier then just giving your plants water and teas. She's one of those strains that fade pretty fast when she gets going. I'll bet 10 days leaves will be pretty much done. She's a 70 day from seed and 10 days will be 75 from seed. Last harvest I pulled em at 74 and the sugar leaves were even fading. Thanks again D.A.A.S.69.

                D.A.A.S.69 Fascinating and clear directions for the "paper bag dry" method: I will have to try it.

              in the news letter this morning it said to not feed plants in soil for about 3 to 4 weeks to let them use up the nutrients in the soil, so here is my question I do my autos in soil I use root organic green field and coast of Maine platinum series will they have enough nute so that I dont have to add any or will they run out

                Not sure how far those will carry you through growth. That was my concern as well oldjarhead100. That's why I decided to do a kiss method soil. My thought was, those are good soils but will it be enough for flowering. Cannabis are considered heavy feeding plants and I figured I'd run into problems towards the end of the grow. I'd say that they're probably enough to get them through a couple months but after that will there be enough left to supply flowers. I believe you will still have to apply bloom food (p) specifically since p will get used up for root growth. My 2 cents anyway.

                oldjarhead100, that's where Recharge, is worth it's weight in gold, it will charge up your soil, quickly too. After using it, you will see quick results, everything just looks much better, in a day or two at most.
                Plus it depends on if you are growing fast autos or slow autos.
                This soil I use will definitely last thru 2months ,with nothing added. If I was to use 3gallon pots, an easy 3months.

              alltatup you want autos I would look at that guy D.A.A.S.69 has been talking about. Newguy420. He has a really nice selection of autos. So many that you need to hide your money when you look at the site. Trust me on that or you will end up with 5 or more different strains. Lmao. Most of them are shorter than most autos. Anyways good read if you just want to look.

              Another that I have grown, and it was my first auto, was a green crack auto from seedsman. With training I kept it under 15 inches but it was almost 3 ft x 3ft wide. I wanted it short. It did not have alot of fan leaves but the buds literally went all the way to the dirt. I had to put something under the buds to keep them from sitting directly on the soil. That plant made an unbelievable yield. And the flavor was the best tasting smoke I've ever had. I like my pipe the most usually but I smoked all of that one in the vaporizer just for the taste.

                Redwasp I'm not going to buy seeds from anyone but the most reputable breeders; I just don't take what I consider to be a risk. I hope this guy establishes a great reputation, that his seeds display consistent phenotypes and that he win some cups.
